It's appealing, especially if you're a fan of things historical, it's different, and more than that it's clever.
There are three connected novellas in The Erotofluidic Age , focused primarily around the same cast of characters. Daedalus Tesla yes, of course he's related to Nikola Tesla , mad scientist and ontological pioneer, uses sexual energy to power the machines he uses in his experiments. Not his own, of course; like his famous relative, Daedalus prefers celibacy, so he needs lusty volunteers. Unfortunately, the ontological forces aren't always predictable, and Victorian attitudes towards sex add their own complications.
Each story builds on the one that came before it, so the first story sets everything up, wherein Daedalus and his assistant Victor search out a source of the sexual energy they need from a surprising place and their experiments end with unexpected results. The second story picks right up where the first left off, with Daedalus and his household dealing with the consequences of their recent experiment, which they now need outside help to fix.
Daedalus is more than a little dismayed to find the best candidate is a woman scientist, since women obviously have no business in matters requiring such intelligence. Minerva Pierce has a few surprises of her own in store, though. The final story is the longest, and the only one written in the first person, as a letter from Victor to his wife telling her of his adventures while they're separated.

The final story is the longest, and the only one written in the first person, as a letter from Victor to his wife telling her of his adventures while they're separated. He and Daedalus's "nephew," Dewey, wind up travelling to an alternate universe, getting themselves stuck there, and discovering the energies they'd used to travel have an unintended and rather unfortunate effect.

The book was described to me as "humorous steampunk erotica" which is at the very least an unusual combination. It's an apt description, though, and surprisingly successful in all categories. Unlike a lot of books, the steampunk is not just window dressing, all goggles and gears, it's a necessary part of the story, integral to the plot. It is, after all, difficult to transmogrify things without a bit of science fiction in there. As far as the erotic content goes, well as one might expect both from the labelling as erotica and the premise itself, there's a lot of sex going on.
It's hugely varied, both in type of sex and in the participants. The writing itself is appropriate to the time period, with a beautiful vocabulary and a distinctive voice, especially in the third story, "The Terminado.
Book giveaway for The Erotofluidic Age by Vinnie Tesla Jul Aug 20,
It reads as a fun Victorian novel with a few more sci-fi elements and a lot more descriptions of thrusting. Vinnie Tesla won me over. I went into this book expecting to hate it but over time I found myself begrudgingly enjoying the story. And parts of it were actually funny!
The smarmy writing style is really hard to take initially. I thought the author's treatment of the genderqueer violas was really well done. Some of the strange sex scenes such as the geoduck scene or the animated strap-on scene seemed like they were just put in there to impress you with their strangeness. Okay, Mr.
Also the Vinnie Tesla won me over. Also the author does a great job emulating an old-tymey style. I'm not sure I could ever recommend this book to anyone seriously, who is the target audience?? Why does the author refer to his wife as a spousalbeast!
